Enjoy this exciting 2-day Capitol Peak ascent in Aspen with the confidence and safety that the company of a certified mountain guide provides.



2 Days

May - Sep




This 2-day Capitol Peak ascent in Aspen, Colorado is a challenging, but rewarding adventure.

The Capitol Peak (4309 m) is considered to be one of Colorado’s most difficult ascents especially because of its exposed knife-edge ridge. It is located west of Aspen, at the heart of the Elk Mountain Range.

For this trip we have designed an overnight mountaineering program that will allow you to enjoy the best of Colorado’s outdoors.  We will hike up to the Capitol Lake on the first day. There we will camp and enjoy the amazing mountain scenery underneath the Capitol Peak’s northwest face. And at night you will get to see a cavalcade of beautiful stars.

Early the next morning we will start making our ascent before dawn. It will be a demanding day. We will make our way up steep trails and we will use our hands to get across the famous knife-edge. Throughout the trip, the views you will get to enjoy will be breathtaking. And the feeling you will have at the peak’s summit will be unparalleled.

So send us a request, tell us when you’re coming to visit us and we’ll get this 2-day Capitol Peak ascent in Aspen, Colorado all prepared for you.

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
